Toward effective and evidence-based diversity policy

The Netherlands Inclusivity Monitor (NIM) has been launched!

With the aim of bridging science and society, my research group at Utrecht University has teamed up with the National Integration Fund in developing an instrument to monitor organizations' diversity and inclusion practices and their impact.

The National Integration Fund is an initiative by CEO's of big corporations to contribute to a better and more integrated society through an evidence-based approach to diversity. We survey its D&I policy and employee perceptions, screen our findings in light of the latest scientific insights, and identify where progress can still be made. By repeating this annually and by benchmarking between organizations, we can monitor the progress and determine best practices.
